This is it! The original Dorsel's Goetta recipe Just found my 'OLD' Goetta recipe I had cut from a bag of Dorsel's pinhead oatmeal many many years ago. The original recipe grinds the beef and pork together and doesn't use pork sausage. Goetta was created Cincinnati's German immigrants or by Irish immigrants from Louisville Kentucky. for those that want to know more. go to goettafest.com
I was introduced to Goetta a few years ago but just made it for the first time recently. It was hard to find Dorsel's Oats so I had friends from Cincinnati get them for me - and it was worth the wait! This recipe is amazing -- so crispy on the outside and so creamy on the inside. I always fry mine in bacon grease. But now I have to have a Goetta party so all my friends can discover this Cincinnati taste treat!!
Great recipe. @kfr33man1..... There is a Kroger in Richmond that sells it.. You can locate a kroger online and look for item.. it will show you which Kroger carries it.. I am from Florence originally but we are a military family and I can never find it.. I miss it... My Sis in law lives in Richmond and when I visit, I buy some and freeze it for traveling home.
